About the Program

Did you know that bats can eat their body weight in insects in a night? Or that some residents of the Columbia Basin have rare bat species living in their garden shed?

During this program, you'll find out more about the amazing world of bats including their biology, ecology and myths. Students get a virtual tour of bats from around the world, eavesdrop on the echolocation calls of bats, touch and feel bat research equipment.

Post-program activities can be left with the instructor. Students will learn more about how to participate in bat counts or build a bat house.
